Slush, the world’s leading startup event celebrated its 10th edition last week (and what a week it was) bringing together 20.000 tech heads 30th November & 1st December at Messukeskus, the Expo and Convention Centre in Helsinki, for two incredible days of madness.
After a breath taking opening ceremony, Slush 2017 was inaugurated with a few welcome words from President of Finland Sauli Niinistö, introducing this year’s theme “how entrepreneurship can solve the biggest problems of the world”.
His speech was followed by former Vice President of the United States, Al Gore, and his powerful words on sustainability asking: “Do we really have to change? Can we change? and will we change?”, reminding the world that we are on the edge of a sustainability revolution.
MeetingPackage.com, the global platform for booking meeting rooms and event venues, had once again the opportunity to be part of this madness, like 2600 other startups.
